Giving a presentation? If you want to avoid boring your audience to tears, this course is a must
Most presentations are filled with bullet point lists, thick paragraphs of text, and the occasional picture in a desperate attempt to break up the monotony. You can do better than that! This course shows you ways to turn standard content into something that’s actually interesting to your audience. Knowing how to create a PowerPoint slide is one thing. Knowing how to create an effective slide is something different!
As Roger Courville, author of The Virtual Presenters, says – PowerPoint doesn’t teach you to create effective slides any more than Microsoft Word teaches you how to be a good writer. But this course will! During Power Up PowerPoint, you’ll see and experience how creating effective slides will improve your presentations.
Topics covered include:
Almost anyone can piece together a PowerPoint presentation. This course offers a great way to learn how to “amp up” your presentations and deliver your message with the power and authority required to communicate effectively. Taught by presentation skills guru, Kelly Vandever, and TEDx speaker Dr Rebecca Heiss, Power Up PowerPoint will show you that you don’t have to be a graphic designer to create beautiful, effective slides. Learn how to ditch the default settings and Power Up Your PowerPoint!
Almost 3 hours of high-quality HD content in the “Uniquely Engaging”TM Bigger Brains Teacher-Learner style!
